I quite like this approach. And it makes me think of one good advice a good friend gave me once: “If you don’t know what to do – spice it up a bit.”
What a great selection of historical moments in music history. Here is Tupac in prison while being number one in the charts:
1995. Tupac releases his most sensitive record, Me Against the World. Subsequently he becomes the first artist to have a record reach number one on the charts while serving a prison sentence. Also, he wrote a screenplay and got married while imprisoned.
How cool is that?! Here is a “real” drum machine inspired by the legendary TR-808. A “drum robot” which consists of a complete drum set built in a big box, with each instrument being triggered by Ableton.

Before I boarded the plane this morning, I took a look at the weather forecast for Pula, Croatia: rain until monday.
